Nebraska "The Good Life"

Hello everyone!

When entering the state, it says "Nebraska, the good life". I am actually loving it here.  I have been here for a month and the people are very nice.  I was able to find a job fairly quickly, and I start next week.  The boys are doing ok, the level of education in NE is much higher than it was in AZ, but they are improving.

I really enjoy seeing my nephew and sister everyday.  Having a 1 year old around sure does keep you on your toes!  That's the only thing I miss...being able to just hang out in my room and watch Netflix.  Not much down time around here lol.

I have an appointment next month with a local oncologist.  I hear she's the best in Omaha so we shall see.  I have already set myself and the boys up with Primary Care Physicians so things are really coming along.

I have been on 3 dates since I've been here.  Two of them were nice men, just didn't feel attracted to them.  The last one has potential so I'll keep you all updated.  :)

I don't see many posts from you all these days.  I pray all is well.  Hugs to you, Laren.  You have been in my prayers often!

Anybody hear from Irene at all?

Kh I hope things are well with you.

Tammy I hope the wedding was great!

Sabina???  I miss hearing from you.

Hi Sandy!

Hugs to all of you!

So this is life???

Hello to my dear cancer followers!

Gosh it's been so long.  I pray you are all doing well.  I've uploaded a recent pic of me and my boys. Hair is growing!

i have been in remission for 16 months now and every time I get an all clear, my oncologist seems so surprised.  I always feel the same. Having triple negative just feels like I'm racing the clock, but I suppose all cancers feel that any.

I'm making some major changes in my life.  The boys and I are moving to Nebraska to be near my sister, her husband, and my one year old nephew. It's going to be a major climat change!  The boys lave this Thursday, January 4th so that they can start the new semester in Nebraska.  I am hoping to be there in February, just have to wrap up some loose ends here with the house.

I am moving for many reasons. I want my boys to be near my sis and her family and to truly know their cousin because if I do relapse, they will be the boys' guardians. 

I also want my boys to see what a real family looks like, having a male role model around.  I was never able to find a good one for them.

Last, deep down, I maybe "running" but I'm not sure.  I have been living life, putting on that sweet smile and trying to accept that I don't need anything else in my life than to provide for my kids. Yet I still feel empty. Some days I literally feel like I am wasting space.  Not suicidal or anything, but just questioning the purpose of things sometimes.  Especially love.  We all want it, yet most of the time it appears it doesn't last. I know there are some cases where it does, but I see a lot of heartache from many of my loved ones.  My dream is for my boys to find a great love, yet I find myself fearing it at the same time.  I don't want them to ever hurt.  I suppose I have become a cynic.

Whatever happens, I pray that this Move at the very least provides us with a fresh outlook and chances for happiness and growth. 

I often wonder how all of you are doing.  I see some have posted, but I honestly have a hard time keeping up. If any of you are reading this, please message me.  Kathee, Irene, Sabina, Tammy, Laren and Nan, Jennifer. 

Love to you all! 

Sabina sent you a prayer.
Sabina sent you a hug.
